Temporary stop HRT
« on: February 26, 2019, 08:17:12 pm »
I’m 2 year on hormones, I inject Estradiol Valerate  every 5 days. What will happen if I’ll stop injections for 2 or 3 month? I have large reservation of spirinolocton, I don’t use it, because often injections of estrogen get my testosterone close to zero. But if I’ll stop estrogen injections will spiro help me to stop the reverse processes? Is this danger for my health? I hope it will not happen, and I’ll find pills if will not have injections, but I must know what will happen with worst case?

This would be something to discuss with your prescribing doctor.

Here in the UK , surgeons usually require you to stop HRT for 6 weeks prior to surgery. So If it's only for a known short period of time, i can't foresee a problem. BUT you will get menopausal symptoms , as in hot flushes etc.
As far as spiro is concerned , I don't know.

Thank you! I hope I’ll resolve it and will not risk. I just temporarily will change injections to pills, it mush cheaper then injections :)

I ran out of EV inj, in early Sept.  By mid Nov. I was lactating this went on for a month, mid Dec. My skin was oily and that just got worse with time, just got re-prescribed in Feb, and everything is clearing up.

I bought from outside US for 14 years, and have found the legit prescribed injectable is WAY better.  I just paid 22.50 for a 40mg/ml 5ml vial at the local walmart, that would have been 187.00 with GoodRX card and 350 with no help.  GoodRX claims to be able to reduce That to 77.00 on the generic, I may have presented the wrong card, Their discount does next to nothing for Brand name Delestrogen.
Good luck and hope you get it affordably.
